I worked at Clean Water Action full-time (More than a year)

Pros

On turf, there was a great deal of autonomy. The work environment and other employees were great and kept me coming to work. It was rewarding to see concrete results come out of specific campaigns.

Cons

The work hours, canvasser's hours, were poor; work starts anywhere from 12:30 to 2:30 and ends around 11pm. The wages were not consistent with the amount of physical and emotional effort required by the job.

    Pros

    You receive valuable life skills, and you get to spend your days working for a cause that you (hopefully) care about. Fun work environment, you can make friends for life. Some opportunities for advancement and leadership training.

    Cons

    Low salaries, questionable employment practices (particularly in regards to their trainers), and how much CWA actually does for the environment is arguable. Also, they don't really care how you manipulate or lie to people, as long as you raise a lot of money doing so.

    I have been working at Clean Water Action (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very welcoming environment, was quickly accepted as a team member. Everyone had similar views and it truly felt like we were all united in fighting the good fight.

    Cons

    It was winter so it was freezing - the long hours in the cold and dark sucked.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing the good stuff and take out inefficient management as soon as it's recognized by someone higher up.
